This is Not a Notebook

As a self confessed book-aholic and hoarder of all things, it is quite natural to assume that beautiful stationary items are one of my top 5 weaknesses. Paperchase visits have to be limited to at least bi-monthly occurrences otherwise rent simply would not be paid. However! Even though I have drawers full of notepads that […]

Being Who You Want To Be

Get the Friday feeling with this fun animation from Salon Alpin, who describe themselves as a ‘Sustainable Storytelling Studio’. It mixes animation, CGI and stop motion to bring to life the ocean waves we all enjoy, in the form of pages in a book. Make sure to watch all the way to the end for […]
